Event 3: $3,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha



One Table, Four Players, Two Double Ups

• Ниво 7: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Over on Table 439 both short stacks doubled up at the same time. Josh Arieh doubled holding pocket aces against Koon's {9-Hearts} {8-Clubs}. The board gave Arieh a sweat when it ran {5-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {10-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}.

Then Annette Obrestad doubled up Sebastian Saffari when he held {Q-Hearts} {J-Spades} and Obrestad held {9-Spades} {8-Hearts}. The board ran {2-Hearts} {J-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {10-Spades}.

Williams' Up and Down Day

• Ниво 7: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

It seems that David Williams has been playing from behind nearly all day. He just lost a big pot against Simeon Naydenov and cashed in his last lammer. The very next hand Naydenov shoved from the button and Williams snap-called and tabled two aces.

Nyadenov held {K-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} and the board ran {6-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} and Williams has some chips to fight with.

Тагове: David WilliamsSimeon Naydenov


A Force to be Reckoned with, and Nice River for Koon

At the same time Jason Koon was hitting a miracle river to bust Josh Arieh down to his last lammer (96k), George Lind was busting for real to Leif Force.

Koon and Arieh got all the chips in on a {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop.

Arieh: {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for trip queens.
Koon: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Spades} for an over-pair.

The board ran out {6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} to make Koon a full house.

Annette Obrestad pair of sixes won a PLO hand.

We rushed over to find Annette Obrestad all in, still with two lammers behind, and Sebastion Saffari had called.

Obrestad: {A-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} {3-Spades}
Saffari: {K-Hearts} {9-Hearts} {7-Spades} {6-Clubs}

The board showed {6-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} {2-Clubs} {2-Hearts} and Obrestad's pair of sixes took the pot.

Тагове: Annette Obrestad


Racencer Busts First Lammer

Тагове: John RacenerGregg Merkow

Frankenberger Eliminates Sexton

Andy Frankenberger and Mike Sexton got all the money in after the flop of {2-Spades} {8-Spades} {6-Hearts}.

Frankenberger: {8-Hearts} {6-Diamonds}
Sexton: {8-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds}

Sexton was drawing to a deuce to stay alive but bricked when the board completed {7-Spades} {A-Clubs}. Sexton grabbed his things and rushed over to Event 4 where he still has a stack. He made it just in time for hand-for-hand play. He could be the first player of the WSOP to cash twice in one day this year.

Lind's Last Lammer

• Ниво 7: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

George Lind is down to his last lammer (96k) after he was unlucky not to double in his match versus Leif Force.

Lind open shoved from the button with {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and was called by Force with a dominated {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The board ran {2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Things were looking rosy for Lind on the flop but running hearts wilted him.
